New Shop and Care Centre Opening 1st Anniversary
Area Co-Ordinator Janet Bell was delighted that there was an excellent turn-out to celebrate the anniversary of their first year in the new MABS San Javier Centre.
Members of the public were already waiting for the doors to open at 10am for the start of the celebration and the first of the new season’s clothes and accessories.
MABS Van Drivers had come in early to put up the bunting and help rearrange the shop before opening. Shop Volunteers were there, some coming in on their day off, to keep the rails full of bright summer clothes, shoes, bags and scarves; in fact anything you might need for the summer was available at bargain prices.
MABS would like to say a big thank you to all the San Javier Volunteers for their hard work leading up to the event. We would also like to thank the members of the public who support us, not only by buying our goods, but also those who donated. Without all of the aforementioned MABS would not be able to function the way it does.
We are also always looking for volunteers and anyone interested should contact firstname.lastname@example.org, or simply call into either our San Javier shop or our Totana shop.
Eddy Allen Memorial Golf Day
The annual golf day in memory of Eddy Allen was held recently in aid of MABS Cancer Support Group. Although it was a very blustery day 25 players took to the course at Roda Golf Resort and achieved good scores.
Campbell’s Restaurant organised the day with Monica Allen (widow of Eddy). In the evening a Presentation Dinner was held where players, guests and sponsors enjoyed dinner before the presentation of prizes. The overall winner was Bill Brooke and Monica presented him with the Eddy Allen Trophy.
Cairen of Campbell’s thanked everyone for supporting the day including the Sponsors – Great Golf Company and Costa Calida Golf Tours.
After a fantastic raffle, including a lovely hamper, the total raised for MABS was 700€. Monica Allen presented Janet Bell, Area Co-Ordinator for MABS Mar Menor with the cheque. Janet said “Please be assured this very generous donation will be put to good use in helping us continue assisting cancer patients and their families. We are very grateful to you all, particularly as this is an annual event and each year you manage to raise more than the year before; thank you”.
